GUWAHATI: The Assam State Zoo-cum-Botanical Garden will welcome a pair of giraffes to be brought in from Mysore and Patna by October this year in exchange of rhinos. Amidst adverse comments, various new initiatives – from the enrichment of animals to infrastructural development have been taken up. Zoo authorities have also launched a new web portal where zoo tickets can be bought online without any change in the fares. According to officials, there is a monthly footfall of more than 15 to 20 thousand visitors, which has cropped up the need to introduce the web portal. With everything going digital, this initiative was undertaken to keep the same views in mind.
